Yesterday I made cupcakes in order to get rid of all my extra filling and icing. I tried a new recipe.

Orange Cupcakes...from
• 1 3/4 cup cake flour (see tip)
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 2 large eggs, separated and whites beaten until stiff
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/2 cup orange juice
• 1 stick of butter, softened

Orange Cupcake Recipe Directions

Combine butter, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Cream these ingredients together thoroughly.

Mix flour, salt, and baking powder together in a separate mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients to creamed ingredients 1/3 at a time alternating with adding portions of the orange juice to the creamed mixture.

Fold in beaten egg whites. Spoon batter into cupcake liners until 1/2 full.

Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool cupcakes completely before frosting with Orange Icing.

Note~~ Do NOT overbake!

I thought they were quite tastee. I would love to make them again but without the vanilla and more orange juice. Plus I didn't get to use the orange icing since I was using my leftover icing. So to sum it up, I'd definitely make these again.

Pictures of the cupcakes. Silly me didn't realize I was out of cupcake liners and I couldn't go to the store because I didn't have the car. So I had to make do without liners, that's why they look funny haha.
